Overview

Effective leadership in Catholic organisations is not only about engaging the energies of their people, it is also about tapping into each person’s motivation to achieve something worthwhile and focusing that motivation upon a task that is worth their commitment.

Against this background, true leadership in Catholic organisations means developing a deep understanding of Catholic identity, ethos, and mission and its integration with day-to-day leadership functions in modern organisations. This university qualification was developed in collaboration with industry partners, such as Catholic Healthcare Australia, and is designed for leaders of Catholic health, aged care, educational, and social welfare organisations.
